First Look at PowerShell

I attended Gert Drapers’ session on PowerShell for SQL Server. I used to be a Linux sys admin – where everything I did involved either Perl or Bash scripting – so the idea of PowerShell piqued my interest.

Apparently PowerShell is built on top of .NET objects, and will come as a standard tool in Windows Server 2008. Something to look forward to… (btw, Windows Server 2008 and IIS 7.0 looked pretty kewl. They demonstrated how to add a WFE to a farm, and it took a few minutes to do so. Yeah, yeah. Might be too good to be true.. We’ll see when it gets out.
